Dauphin’s Countryfest is getting ready for another successful edition of Canada’s longest running country music festival in 2023.
Last week, Countryfest organizers announced the first round of artists who will perform at Selo Ukraina between June 30 and July 2, 2023.
John Fogerty, Dierks Bentley, Walker Hayes, Tenille Townes, Tim Hicks, James Barker Band, Robyn Ottolini, Jason McCoy, Tim and The Glory Boys and DJ Johnny Rivex have all been contracted to perform throughout the weekend.
“We are thrilled to announce one of the most well-rounded lineups we have ever done,” said festival general manager Rob Waloschuk. “There is truly an artist for every Countryfest fan.”
Fogerty is best known as the lead vocalist and frontman of Creedence Clearwater Revival. He embarked on a highly successful solo career in 1973. Fogerty has been named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the greatest singers and guitarists of all time.
Bentley has been pegged as “one of Country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity” and boasts more than 6.4 billion overall digital streams. He has amassed nominations from the ACMs, CMAs, Billboard Music Awards, and Grammy’s and is currently nominated for CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year.”
Hayes, from Mobile, Alabama, is best known for tracks such as “You Broke Up With Me” and “Fancy Like.” He plays guitar and piano, and is known for his distinct voice. He’s toured with the likes of Kelsea Ballerini, Old Dominion, and Dan and Shay.
Townes is an award-winning singer, songwriter and musician and a 14-time Canadian Country Music Award winner, including being the reigning CCMA Entertainer of the Year.
All four performers will appear on the Club Regent Event Centre Main Stage.
Organizers also announced that Countryfest goers who purchase their tickets prior to Jan. 6, 2023, will also be able to enjoy the Thursday Kick-Off Party with The Road Hammers and Honeymoon Suite for free.
